Every year 26th January is celebrated as the Republic Day of India. What exactly is the Republic Day? India became independent on 15th August 1947 yet we followed the rules laid down by the Britishers. On 26th January India adopted its own book of laws or the Constitution of India thereby severing all colonial ties and became a Republic. The Constitution was adopted on this day as 26th January was the day when the call for Purna Swaraj (Full Independence)was given in 1930. It is the longest written constitution in the world
Every year the President of India leads the celebrations. The Ministry of Defence organizes the parade in the capital , New Delhi, which begins from Rajpath and goes all the way past the Red Fort. The parade is an exhibition of India’s military might and also a celebration of its unity in diversity. The important Padma Awards are given on this day. Bravery awards are given to children below 16 years of age who perform deeds of bravery and selfless sacrifice. Another important feature of this event is that a foreign head of state is invited to become the Chief Guest each year.
The Prime Minister lays a wreath at the Amar Jawan Jyothi to honour the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for the country. A 21 gun salute is also an integral part of the celebration.
The celebrations span over a period of four days. It concludes on the 29th of January with the Beating the Retreat ceremony which takes place at Vijay Chowk (Victory Square) and is also presided over by the President.
Republic Day is celebrated in all the state capitals where the Governor hoists the National flag. All schools, colleges and government buildings are venues for hoisting the National tricolour. Many schools and colleges distribute sweets too. Tree planting initiatives are also a popular way to commemorate the day.
The celebrations are not only about enjoyment but is also a tribute to the people who sacrificed their all for the freedom of our country. The celebrations are a confluence of the solemn with the festive. It is a day to remember the past and light a lamp for the future too.
